Georgia ranks among the top states in wildlife diversity and offers excellent hunting. You can hunt whitetail deer, eastern turkey, black bear, alligator, waterfowl, and more!
There is a healthy population of whitetails in Georgia, close to 1 million. In 2010, hunters harvested 464,000 whitetail deer with 155,265 being bucks.
The Georgia turkey population is estimated at more than 335,000. Georgia has one of the longest turkey seasons and the Georgia Wildlife Management areas offer excellent turkey hunting opportunities. In the spring of 2010, 34,000 birds were taken.
The Georgia black bear population is about 2,200 now and healthy. This continues to improve due to the rugged remote mountain areas and wildlife management. Chattahoochee WMA is consistently a good place to hunt bear. Charlton County is also a good place to kill big bear, as is the land near Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. 68% of bear were taken on WMA’s (wildlife management area).
Alligators may also be hunted in the state. Georgia alligator hunting is done by rope, snares, harpooning, and arrows. You do need an Alligator license besides your regular license, and this is done by lottery. In 2010, 219 alligators were harvested in Georgia.
Georgia is known as one of the premier hunting areas for quail. Waterfowl is also offered, such as: Canadian goose, teal, ducks, rails, coots, and snow geese. No lead shot may be used. A hunter must also possess a Harvest Information Program license, a federal duck stamp, and a Georgia Waterfowl Conservation Stamp.
